7. Sobey's CEO talks to National Post,

“This in no way reflects the position of the company,” he told the National Post. “It’s an isolated incident that is related to one franchisee applying an internal policy that is not reflective of the policy of the company in any way, shape or form.”

Mr. Poulin, a Quebecer who graduated from Université Laval, said the company respects Quebec’s language laws in the workplace but the franchise owner in Saint-Lambert went too far.

“What’s unacceptable is the fact that we tried to constrain the liberty of language of the employees,” he said. “It’s clear that in the relationship with the customers, we’ve got to respect the customers first and the laws that are applicable in every jurisdiction in which we do business.

“Our relationships with our franchisees are on a one-to-one basis, and we will deal with Madame Ménard in the appropriate fashion, within the context of our contractual relationship with her,” he said.
